    Everything is a rumor until Apple announces it.

    Why do you care about Siri? I don't use it on my iPhone...I feel it is a waste on my iPad. Dictation works much better and I hope they keep it there.

    Just thought it was cool for apple to include....also it is supposed to be improved with the new iOS. Finally, it would help my parents who have difficulty with typing and were looking to get a tablet. Dictation is not as user friendly for searches or asking questions...

    It would only work when you're connected to a WI-FI network

    How would you store all the info from Siri servers on your iPad? Do you understand how Siri works? You ask a question, it looks up stuff on its servers. Unless you lame Siri so that it can't look up stuff, how would your idea work?

    The dictation works if you go to the search page and click in the box..then hit the microphone and speak your search phrase. Dictation can save one a lot of time. So far, Siri has proven useless. My concern it that it will eat up more space but not provide much in return. We shall see, however.

    well, the iPad 3 has the hardware for siri and even does the voice dictation part already. Its just a matter of if apple has finished getting siri ready and if they can handle the increase in siri users(its all processed remotely).


    Note that it would be for iPad 3 and not first/second gen iPads.
